The last thing I wanted after rupturing my achiles tendon was to stumbled around on crutches and not be able to move around. So I was obviously relieved when one of the trainers at my physical therapy recommended this knee walker. This thing is easy to get around on and just
plain cool. Itís generally not fun to be laid up, but the knee walker is making me feel like a kid again.
So much better than crutches!
Surgery on my foot had me hobbling around for a number of weeks. As an athlete, I thought I'd be fine on crutches. Fast forward just a couple of days, I was miserable. My palms were bruised and my armpits were rubbed raw. Enter Knee Walker. What a difference!! Not only was it pain free it was also made me faster than when I could walk! And, it's super fun.
A World of Difference!
I tore my Achilles tendon and had surgery to repair it. Of course, no weight on the foot and I was sentenced to crutches. I was mentally and emotionally devastated by how limiting the crutches were around the house and office. Plus my heavy frame didn't make crutches any easier. I took to the internet and discovered this alternative. Wow, wow, wow! Thanks for helping me get my mobility back while I recover and lifting my spirits. I can be helpful at home and productive at work. And it's durable too. I accidentally sent my knee walker down a small set of stairs with no damage. This great product got me back on my feet while complying with the no weight directive.
Back to Work
When I slipped on icy steps and had surgery to repair broken foot bones, my surgeons's office handed me a brochure for the Knee Walker. I was a bit skeptical that this would work for me because I had a knee joint replacemeent and did not know if I would be comfortable bearing weight on that knee. But I was determined to get back to work ASAP, so ordered the Northrup model with extra padding. I did not have a problem with the knee replacement at all. Though I did not find it useful at home - small house, many levels, etc. it made me completely independent at work, around the office and out on the university campus -- we have very large buildings! I am 61, had no issues at all with using the knee walker, and the light weight made it easy to maneuver in and out of the car trunk. I absolutely could not have been up to capacity at work without the knee walker, but with it, I was up to speed. And it was fun, too. Kids loved it, strangers wanted to hear about it. I got a lot of smiles and commendations from people watching me wheel around. Though I had to suffer the nickname "Scooter" among my co-workers! I most heartily recommend the Knee Walker and this company!
So Worth It
After getting surgery on my foot, I was instructed to stay off of my foot for two months. After a week of being on crutches, Iíd had enough. It was terrible. I got sore spots under my arms and kept having moments where I nearly fell. So I put my crutches aside and started looking at knee walkers.
I did my research and then went online shopping. I decided on the Norhtrup Knee Walker because of the reviews I had seen and the recommendation someone at my doctorís office gave me. I was impressed right away because it was very easy to put together AND it was really solid. This was surprising, as it is a lightweight walker but itís still a really well built walker.
This walker is really great for tight spaces, so if youíre grocery shopping, itís no more difficult than pushing a cart through a crowded aisle. And the steering is awesome. Tight turns are much easier than I would have thought and the braking system was reliable and safe.
All in all, from the design right down to the super comfy cushion, this walker far exceeded all of my expectations.
